„I miss my family in America the most. Although I was attacked a few times because of the color of my skin, I love Germany and enjoy living here."
I was born 60 years ago in Virginia USA. I came to Germany as a 19 year old in 1975 with the U.S. Army, met my wife, got married and had 2 children. After leaving the U.S Army in 1982 I stayed in Germany and found a job as a truck driver. Learning German was very hard for me, because i did not get the chance to take a German classes. It was much easier for my children because they grew up with the German language. We were not involved in German clubs, but we have many German friends. I am sad about the fact , that some of my friends, who live here as well think really bad about Germany and only think about money. For me typical German are Currywurst and potato salad.
